People Buy Products, Not Any Technology

Shipping a great new product, not necessarily based on a new technology is adequate for the growth of business.

Steve Jobs made NeXT once he was forced to leave Apple behind. WorldWideWeb was invented on a NeXT computer. Still the business was not that good for NeXT.

On the other hand Tim Berners-Lee refrained from releasing world-wide-web under GNU-GPL only on the basis that corporates might not get involved due to the leftist reputation of GNU and Richard Stallman. Thereafter came Linux, GNU’s much awaited kernel code from Finland. That struggled for desktop space although got server side business. Then came Andy Rubin. He simply made android by using Linux as its kernel and a great new product is born to get purchased by Google. That made its own space acquiring the highest growth rate ever seen in business.

Apple got in trouble and Amelio started looking for a new operating system. Fortunately Apple bought NeXT shelling out much larger amount for less valued stocks but for what? Steve Jobs was hired again and what he did? He stopped Apple, looking for a new operating system. Instead he prepared Apple to ship the great new product iPod. iPod by Apple was greater than Walkman by Sony. Considering that the concept was not new as music listening on the go has already been a popular behaviour. iPod simply added great value to that popularity and became successful within no time establishing a great new user experience. Business became good around that.

People do not buy a technology. People buy a product. Shipping a great new product, not necessarily based on a new technology is adequate for the growth of business.

Stalinism Is Continued Through Internet Age And Its Smartphone Stage

Stalin is relevant for recognizing the worth of data mining for extracting efficient intelligence.

Richard Stallman keeps away from smartphone, calling it the portable tracking device and blaming it as Stalin’s dream come true. Julian Assange called entire internet age as what Stalin would have admired. So Stalin is at the receiving end of all the blame of internet age and its smartphone stage. But what for and why?

In Stalin’s regime any uncomfortable facts were not just wiped out from photographs but from the planet earth and edited out of history as well. Yes there was Stalin before the Photoshop who did more than that but that is not all indeed keeping him still relevant through all the progress of internet age of humanity that is even making the most of politics also irrelevant.

Stalin is relevant for recognizing the worth of data mining for extracting efficient intelligence. That is why he is getting increasingly relevant through the smartphone stage of internet age for data retention.

Data retention is the Stalinist feature of smartphone stage of internet age. Machine learning is further implementing this.

Distributing Code Under GPL Must Not Get Taxed

Sangkrit insists that professional programmers distributing their code under GPL must not get taxed because their business upgrades civilization in a fast forward way.

Software engineers, following the ‘four freedoms’ as taught by Richard Stallman, are free software programmers. Free software programmers, who earn livelihood as taught by Sangkrit, by serving their code to domain registrants under GPL upon getting paid in hourly per terminal basis, are professional programmers. Such source code is eternally left open for further evolution.

Sangkrit insists that professional programmers, distributing their code under GPL, must not get taxed because their business upgrades civilization in a fast forward way. Like Linux kernel under GPL, has built the modern framework of internet age by running most successful operating systems such as GNU and android.

Smart governments should be inventing smarter incentives for freeing the software within their countries since this can improve public life standards without any government investments.

Freeing The Software And Opening The Government Make The Hacktivism Win Election As Well

FREE THE SOFTWARE! MASTER THE CODE! OPEN THE GOVERNMENTS! WIN THE ELECTIONS!

Richard Stallman campaigned to free the software. Linus Torvalds made it free by mastering its kernel code. Julian Assange used this for opening the governments. Birgitta Jónsdóttir won elections upon all that. Freeing the software and opening the government make the hacktivism win election as well.

Opening the government is the hacktivist kind of opposition and free software protects the privacy of individual humankind. This becomes politically befitting with netizens.

Enhancing the concept of private property in registering, developing and transferring a domain has the key to new age of humanity i.e. internet age. Owning the domain makes one a real entity of internet age. Netizenship is truly availed by owning your domain.

Domain registrants do require fighting for freedom. Using only GPL software is the universal weapon in this regard.

Sangkrit has shown a way of mastering the code. Professional programmers should be selling online support to domain registrants. Independent developers developing domains as only private class of global property is a decent way of building the castles of internet age.

You will have to bring your people into internet age for winning their support. Many things might not be available in your country but you may still access, use and distribute everything. Signup for your free SANGKRIT.net account to become a personal outlet of its globally distributed order for selling worry-free web/app packages to your people.

Birgitta Jónsdóttir Has Won The Way

Birgitta Jónsdóttir has finally made the global hacktivists really ready to rule the world, the way people want them. This is going to matter everywhere onward.

Birgitta Jónsdóttir never personally aspired to become the prime minister. Beyond the electoral results of Iceland, she has very successfully won the way for all sorts of hacktivists across all the countries alike.

At the same time, India is celebrating the festival of lights. May be the hacktivists worldwide would always celebrate like this.

Who is a hacktivist?

Whoever respects Richard Stallman’s free software effect up on the beginning of the internet age and lives without disrespecting that, is a hacktivist.

Following this, not only pure hackers but like píratars and wikileakers, any professional programmers, startup entrepreneurs and venture investors can also become hacktivists. Hacktivists insist up on immunity for the likes of Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. Unlike left and unlike west, hacktivists work just like internet.

In the beginning questions concerning jobs and employment were not addressed adequately and still campaigns were not integrated that well within internet industry. Sangkrit insists up on doing so urgently. Once this is done, you won’t ever lose again.

Hacktivists can become very best for attracting investments and inclusion of the very best kind while running smart states worldwide. That would electorally be winning the case.

Hacktivists must adequately be addressing the questions concerning education, entrepreneurship and employment. That shall make them invincible by involving whole people around them. Sangkrit literally means involving whole people. Adapting an invincible approach in politics is quite possible now.

Birgitta Jónsdóttir has made the global hacktivists really ready to rule the world, the way people want them. This is going to matter everywhere onward.

Total Transparency Can Curb Down All Coercion In Public Life

Píratar have politically emerged as hope of humanity for relaying solid-state public facts from worldwide by making Iceland a bit haven, the way Switzerland has been a haven for safekeeping the money acquired anywhere.

Ninety-nine years after the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, Píratar in Iceland have politically emerged as hope of humanity since they are about to win their way. It is not less important an event about to occur being the great October hacktivist revolution.

Píratar might be relaying solid-state public facts from worldwide by making Iceland some sort of a bit haven, the way Switzerland has been a haven for safekeeping the money acquired anywhere. That is promised to get done in immediate future and Birgitta Jónsdóttir is riding globally high on humane hopes at her hacktivist best.

Unlike Left

Hopes are high as were around the beginning of Lenin’s revolution in Russia that was then considered as good replacement for both capitalism and representative democracy but riding high on those very humane hopes, Stalin sincerely built unparalleled empire with coercion unseen elsewhere. That exactly shows that how high the hopes were then too and how much energy got produced on that basis.

Soviet Union continued for many decades by suppressing facts to maintain its fake facade. Finally Yuri Andropov tried to repair dysfunctional socialist system a little bit before Mikhail Gorbachev made his attempt on continuing that. At the same time a son of divorced communist parents in Finland, named Linus Torvalds wrote the kernel that is now successfully running the world into internet age but that too was not capable of running socialism any further. Soviet Union was unable to cope with upcoming times so collapsed without even knowing about Linus Torvalds or Sergei Bin born within its domain.

Socialism in the nanny state of Soviet Union very naturally failed. Free will is given to the humankind so that must get well respected in designing any sustainable political moves. Nanny states unnecessarily regulating individuals make only political scams such as, there is no unemployment although no one works, no one works although everyone gets paid, everyone gets paid although there is nothing to buy with the money given, no one can buy anything but everyone owns everything, everyone owns everything but no one is satisfied, no one is satisfied still everyone votes for the system. Birgitta Jónsdóttir has made this also clear “…we are not like many left parties that want to regulate citizens and create nanny states. We believe that regulation should be on the powerful, not the individuals.”

Left used to become total coercion on public life in the name of people. Unlike left, total transparency might have the power to curb down all coercion in public life. Official secrets are now past. Wikileaks has made them bit-driven facts. Here comes the need for a new kind of supportive state so that facts remain publicly open. Píratar in Iceland might make a provision of that. In a way unprecedented elsewhere, Iceland even jailed its bad bankers for causing financial crisis through society by misappropriating public money. That is also a convention worth following by free world.

Unlike West

On 27 October 2016 at 07:07 PM @wikileaks tweeted, “Party founded by former WikiLeaks producer @birgittaj (“Pirate Party”) is likely to take power in Iceland on Saturday according to polling.”. This sounds a forgone introduction for Birgitta Jónsdóttir, in whose company Julian Assange learnt the importance of getting political. Thereafter both of them duly grown apart, doing their own things and now both of them matter that separately in all respects that they earned pretty well.

The way Julian Assange represents WikiLeaks, Birgitta Jónsdóttir represents the possible bit haven. Respecting their consistency like that is going to complete the equation of total transparency in internet age. Total transparency can curb down all coercion in public life. That is the greatest thing politically possible now. If it is done. It is going to be a revolution for humankind.

Incidentally Iceland has been independent of European Union so not yet faced that influx of refugees, which brings nations face to face with the worst. Humankind has to face its worst enemy i.e. the aggressive pseudo-Arabism. It is certainly not any religion but is aggressive pseudo-Arabism in the name of a religion. It is like when backwardness becomes aggressive against forward public life. Aggressive pseudo-Arabism has been the worst enemy of humane integrity. Formation of Pakistan was a manifestation of this.

Aggressive pseudo-Arabism destroys all local naturalness by enforcing Arab way of life resulting really reactionary resistance everywhere. Although its code to get defeated is inbuilt within its this very nature but that comes with great humane cost on humanity.

Just Like Internet

Opposition to the hacktivist victory in Iceland is depending on a false allegation that Píratar could further destabilize Iceland’s now recovering economy by scaring off all investors due to their lack of political experience. In fact such opposition seriously lacks the fundamental information that hacktivists everywhere are quite capable of gathering the most of investments around them because of being at the core of internet industry.

Life is limited so you get trained direct during performance in the game of establishing order without even knowing the laws that bring you in order. That has also been a way of doing a lot better.

Compel Your Government For Paying A Daily Delay Allowance Upon Every Lawful Public Grievance Until It Is Duly Resolved

A public grievance means the failing of the government in whatever has been its given task.  Therefore all of you may better compel your incompetent government for paying a daily delay allowance upon every lawful public grievance until it is duly resolved.  Continue reading Compel Your Government For Paying A Daily Delay Allowance Upon Every Lawful Public Grievance Until It Is Duly Resolved

Certain Terms Get Lost Through Evolution

Linus Torvalds publicly prefers the term ‘programming’ or ‘engineering’ instead of ‘hacking’ although he doesn’t mind calling himself a ‘hacker’ while Richard Stallman still make hard efforts to bring the term ‘hacker’ back in usage by differentiating this with crackers.  Continue reading Certain Terms Get Lost Through Evolution

Bitcoin Is Independent And Accountable

A pure transaction generates happiness at both the ends. Only such a transaction holds actual purity of its being, which occurs without any pressures involved. It is what makes it independent and accountable. Bitcoin universally ascertains all that.

GPL Is Getting Ready To Get Made A Law Across All Countries

RKP & RMSRKP and RMS have repeatedly met and discussed. In some of the meetings a few senior associates and FSF activists also participated. RMS is seeing RKP’s approach too radical whereas RKP is stressing that tolerance for proprietary environs won’t work for us and both the leaders are solidly together to take on old world order. They may design something that is going to electrify whole world across all time zones.

May be the legendary GPL is getting ready to get made a law across all countries. It is not going to happen in one go but the things have really began. Birgitta Jónsdóttir from Iceland may also join in. Senior-most politicians of India have given the nod. The world is not going to remain as it has been.

Shardul Pandey Talks To Mishi Choudhary, Director Of International Practice At Software Freedom Law Center, New York

Mishi Choudhary: Dear Mr Pandey, I am writing to you as a follow up on the dialogue that Mr Advani and Mr Stallman have been engaged in for the past couple of months.

I take the liberty to bring to light some developments in India that have greatly tarnished India’s democratic image and its treatment of its citizens rights of free speech and expression as guaranteed by its constitution. As recently as this Friday, Mr Kapil Sibal and Mr Manish Tiwari discussed plans on national television to destroy anonymity and impose further restrictions on social media interactions of citizens. Needless to say, these measures make them extremely unpopular amongst the youth and business.

The Information Technology Act, 2000 was amended significantly in the aftermath of the November 7, 2008 Mumbai Terrorist attacks but without any discussion in the Indian Parliament despite making sweeping changes in the cyber law framework. It has proved to be the fulcrum of various contentious issues. Indian authorities have stepped up Internet surveillance and pressure on technical service providers, while publicly rejecting accusations of censorship. The national security policy may also undermine freedom of expression and the protection of Internet users’ personal data.

The current government gave itself the power to order the blocking of any online content by Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000. This provision enables the government to order blocking of content. Although safeguards are inbuilt in these provisions, experience in the past one year shows wide variety of misuse for political censorship.

The Google Transparency Report for the period July – December 2010 stated that they had received requests from different law enforcement agencies to remove a blog and YouTube videos that were critical of Chief Ministers and senior officials of different states. The report for the period July – December 2012 mentions 60 executive / police orders demanding removal of content that relate to religious offences and 1 relating to national security. The recent spate of orders for removal of content were related to fears of ethic violence against persons from the North-eastern region of the country.

Many cases have come to light recently of law enforcement agencies indulging in illegal censorship by asking intermediaries to take down content on receiving complaints about content on these sites. This is often done under section 79 of IT Act and section 91 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. However, this provision only allows law enforcement to ask a person to produce a document in connection with any investigation and does not empower them to demand take-down of any content. Although such an action is illegal and is not backed by any statutory provision, many instances of such abuse of power by law enforcement agencies have been reported. A widely reported incident was when the website www.cartoonsagainstcorruption.com was taken down by the web host on the basis of a communication that they received from law enforcement agencies.

Arrests under section 66A for postings on Facebook, Twitter against those in power are becoming commonplace.

We have been working actively on these issues in India since 2010. I would be delighted to talk in detail about current issues with you and if his schedule permits, Mr Advani. I am in India from August 14, 2013 onwards and would love an opportunity to discuss these issues.

I hate to impose on you but If I may mention that we are also putting together an event especially with the Members of the Parliament on August 26, 2013 at the Constitution Club of India. The event will achieve great encouragement if Mr Advani would agree to speak at it.

Please let me know as to how can we be of any assistance.

Shardul Pandey: It is gratifying that you decided to write. Yes I do remember that we were supposed to further that important discussion of technology and politics involving LKA and RMS. That actually got started due to my discussion with RMS, which concluded at a point that everything upon internet deserves being implemented in a p2p manner. We said so for preventing humanity from PRISM type of entrapment, although Edward Snowden was still at NSA then. Would you like to say something on that?

A lot of things have happened since then. All the apprehensions that RMS made explicit then got realized all of sudden. It is a decisive time to make movement. May be our discussion also contribute something substantial.

As first thing I suggest you to share some details here for netizens so that they come to know that what actually is planned for August 26, 2013 at the Constitution Club of India? I will sure be doing whatever may be possible to make it a success.

Mishi Choudhary: Dear Mr Pandey, Thank you for your prompt response. Attached herewith is a concept note about the event. I look forward to discussing it in detail with you.

Shardul Pandey: OK I am seeing this. Public representatives have already opened up their mind through the legislation that you are protesting about. You should better be explicit that what you have in your mind?

What SFLCI has planned for doing with this event; like any memorandum could be given to all of them demanding any particular legislation to protect individual freedom along with social privacy or/and you may ask for their cooperation in your voluntarily helping any victims of any laws ?

Mishi Choudhary: Thank you for your comments. We shall take note of those. Do you think Mr Advani would be available to discuss future IT policy or this event with me in person next week?

Shardul Pandey: Instead of mere thinking and telling, I took time to find out and what I got to let you know is YES.

Mishi Choudhary: Dear Mr Pandey, I am waiting eagerly to meet up with you and Mr Advani to invite for the event on August 26, 2013. Please let me know when is a good time for such a meeting. I look forward to hearing from you.

Shardul Pandey: Regrettably I am not in Delhi and Mr Advani has been busy with Parliament.

Next week could be a good time for you to meet Mr Advani. I already have forwarded your name and wish for his personal information.

Real Heroes Of Internet Age Are All Coming Together

stallman-assangeFounder of most successful operating system GNU-Linux Dr Richard Stallman went to see the founder of WikiLeaks.org Julian Assange in Ecuadorean Embassy at London. They discussed about ensuring a free flight for Edward Snowden providing very eminent persons of internet age as human sheilds from Moscow to Latin America. Proudly they mocked US President Obama’s original electoral line, “Yes We Can” by showing it on a photograph of Snowden. Real heroes of internet age are all coming together and they can certainly do whatever they wish doing now.

During the program of Shardul Pandey Talks published on March 24, 2013 at 1:19 AM Dr Richard Stallman had said, “I see that the Internet is turning into a scheme that gives people convenience in exchange for their freedom. Disservices such as Facebook invite people to share lots of personal information with a company that can make use of it, and hand it to the state as well. SANGKRIT.net has since then permanently showcased that particular talk in the sidebar of each pageview it attracts upon internet. Whatever Richard used to say since so long ago, Edward Snowden, by exposing PRISM, has all of sudden established all that as absolutely accurate. Now the worldwide rebellion of internet age got a very clear-cut streamline consequently named as Dr Richard Stallman, Julian Assange, Aaron Swartz and Edward Snowden. Internet is getting really political indeed while United States of America is left with major deficit in free speech.
